Warner Music Group’s Arts Music division and Sesame Workshop have partnered to revamp the long-dormant Sesame Street Records specialty label for a new, curated series of thematic CD, vinyl, download and streaming releases.
Arts Music’s plans for the revitalized imprint include unreleased music from current and past seasons of the legendary show, featuring thematic compilations and peppered with appearances by pop stars and other celebs. Also included in the releases will be many of the show’s spot-on parodies of pop culture.
New titles featuring these songs will debut in early 2019.
“Sesame Street and music have had a long-standing harmony that began nearly 50 years ago. I’m thrilled this partnership with Sesame Workshop is our first initiative for Arts Music in the kids’ music space,” said Kevin Gore, President of Warner Music’s Arts Music division. “I watched the first episode, owned their first album, shared this music with my kids, and I can’t think of a better brand or mission as our foundation in this space.” [Read More Billboard News]
